Baby boomers and fast food... stay away and improve your health

I cannot imagine anything worse for your health than patronizing fast food restaurants. 

It is easy to see why we do, they have billions to spend on advertising, and some people will go to great links to avoid preparing a meal... all at the cost of your health... and your families.

"You deserve a break today", how about taking a break from fast food?

Remember these establishments are interested in profit not your health... don't you love it when someone goes and picks up a cheeseburger a large order of fries and asks for a large diet soda... let's just say I doubt very seriously if this person will be slim... more likely obese.

Baby boomers and fast food, why is it bad for you?

The billions these companies spend every year in advertising is staggering... their products are designed, in their laboratories, to appeal to your taste buds and make you want more of their product.

Your health never enters into the equation.

The marketing they aim at children is almost criminal... billions spent to make your children and grandchildren want to go and consume fast food.
